for Loop in PHP

  • The for loop is used when you know in advance how many times the script should run or execute a statement.

  • The  for loop allows the user to put all the loop-related statements in one place.

  • The for loop structure is similar to C language.


for (init; condition; increment)
  code to be executed;


  • init: init used to initialize a counter value.
  • condition: Evaluated for each loop iteration. If it evaluates to TRUE, the loop continues. If it evaluates to FALSE, the loop ends.
  • increment: Mostly used to increment a counter value
